"Very sad to see the lack of support for Irom Sharmila in Manipur, and by those who claimed closeness to her at this time."

"UPDATE:  Manipur's violence and corruption problems are not confined to AFSPA, although, being from the State, and state as protective power for the people, was the reason that Sharmila could address its corruption through her long Fast.…"

Irom Sharmila ENDS her 16 year FAST in just a few hours

The Fast is a profound weapon in the arsenal of nonviolent action and protest. It was used by Gandhi for two purposes: firstly, deep communion with the indwelling reality within him and all around him, what he called God, and secondly:“I Fasted to reform those who loved me. You cannot Fast against a tyrant.”... The word 'tyrant' and 'lover have also a general application. The one who does an injustice is styled 'tyrant'. ... The one who is in sympathy with you is the 'lover'.” (Young India,…See More

Dismissing Sharmila in Two Jails: State & People's Goddess Mindset

Truth seekers everywhere can only applaud Sharmila's conduct in these recent days. Sharmila is literally a prisoner of two jails: the state which has unjustly criminalized her for standing up against violence perpetrated in its name, and the prison of social concepts and norms of what is appropriate or not, in the minds of supporters around her, who have deified her, against her will.Deification of people who use pure and noble means, is a natural tendency in the human breast. There is a…See More

Irom Sharmila: Growing Moral Power of a Real Satyagrahi

 India's daughter, Irom Sharmila, is a truly stellar student of Mahatma Gandhi's teachings and principles.Her method of application is unique to her, and is a purer effort than anything the face of the Earth has seen in known centuries.It is the great love inside this World Sister that calls out to the love in those who are denying that love and truth are the core of our beings, who pretend through arrogance that love is not who and…See More

Three Views of Irom Sharmila, the Greatest Gandhian of our Century

Anyone who respects Gandhi will be deeply interested in the selfless effort of Irom Sharmila.  It is internationally recognized that even Gandhi could not have physically borne with the torture of nearly 13 years of force feeding and politically forced silence.  It is difficult to get information about Irom Sharmila other than news reports of her few words caught on her way to and from the fortnightly hearings in Imphal.   Very few people are allowed to meet her, no matter who you are, as the…See More

Aunty Kamala posted a discussion

What is Your View of Spirituality?

Duty is action towards Truth, and Truth is God.  That to me is the root of what I hold to be spirituality. I think this discussion is important, if only to make us pause and reflect on what we really prioritize and ethically value in life.Duty to me, is a righteous path, and known through our conscience. It is the actions that we perform towards actualizing truth.In our conscience, we touch the moral laws that govern us as a whole, as one human family. Our conscience serves as our own faucet,…See More

Why are you interested in the Gandhi-King Community?
I am a student of Gandhi's ideals of Truth and Love. I completed a Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut in 1997, in the Philosophy of Education. The subject of the thesis was Gandhi's ecological, holistic, environmentally transformative and self-educative philosophy. Because of my age and depth of inquiry, some people say 'scholar', but, really I am a student, trying to gain insight and certainty into the ideals he lit his path to Truth within through. I lived with my small family for 12 years 1999-2011, in the MA Math, a community based upon ethical ideals, in Kerala.We are now living between Sweden and the USA. I am interested to know how people are able to apply Gandhi's ideals in their lives and activities, and the problems that they see in this regard, particularly in light of our environmental crisis.
I find that the crisis we are facing right now, as a human civilzation is an ethical crisis. Have written a book to assist in the clarification of the ideals we want to hold in order to create a humane civilization. the title is:

Earth ethics of M.K. Gandhi with Teachings from Holy Mother Amma: an Introduction

I would like to have an open discussion /forum with you over some of your comments in your profile; more specifically how we can or are - displaying the ideals of Gandhi and other human rights advocates.

Girl Child
Some one in the crowd of a hundred,
there is a battered girl
Someone in the crowd of a hundred
is a widely relishing boy
Even if you don't believe this theory
You are supposed to know,
Every second of an hour
A girl is battered sore.
Some girls in crowd of hundred
Are killed as soon as they are born
No one cares for their future
For their lives are only torn.
You might not believe me surely
You might as well be informed
A boy is given more importance
Than a girl when they are born.
One girl in crowd of a hundred
Is respected when she is at birth
You don't need to believe what I say
But you must surely be shown
How for a ninety nine girls
The future of one boy is glown
One girl in the crowd of a hundred
Is not a victim of this injustice
But all in the crowd of a hundred
The honour of girls in all ways dismiss.

Hi Aunty Kamala,

Yes, that is our turtle Jake. He is gorgeous! I enjoy the teachings of Gandhi and King. I believe they both epitomized how to be humane to others. They were deeply committed to bringing people together. You know, folks developing and deepening their understanding of others.
